Vampyr launched back in 2018 on PC and consoles. The action role-playing game by Dontnod features great combat, setting, and story that make it enjoyable despite its flaws, according to Rosh.
Vampyr isn’t without flaws, but I had a lot of fun with it. While the dialogue system feels like an unexpected misstep, the combat, setting and story all make up for that stumble. Stalking through London and inciting fear into the hearts of the overconfident hunters felt fantastic. The spooky setting is filled with short but juicy stories worth finding, places worth exploring and detail worth appreciating. With a more interesting dialogue system, it would have been marvelous. As it stands, overlooking the occasional visual bugs and graphical lapses, Vampyr is still great fun, but like all undead, you’ll have to take the negatives with the positives.
Vampyr is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One worldwide.
